Beginners in the Kitchen | May 11th | £120

Saturday 11th: 11am - 4.00pm | Led By Jayne Annan

Jayne is a very patient and understanding tutor with a wealth of experience.  She explains clearly and puts everyone at ease.  All her instructions and recipes are completely reliable and mean that success is guaranteed every time. It's difficult to follow a recipe if you don't understand the terms that are used plus it would be nice to be able to 'rustle up' a meal without even having a recipe in front of you. This session will help you develop your culinary skills in a supportive environment, working at a gentle pace. The day will help you understand more about how to prepare simple, quick, nutritious meals that will make working in the kitchen an enjoyable and therapeutic experience, rather than a chore, and help you steer away from convenience foods with all those additives. 

Jayne is a wonderful tutor and so patient.  It is incredible how much can be learned in a short time.  Will definitely recommend this to friends - CAS

Lots of useful tips and advice and transferable skills - plus delicious food - Philip
